The Hon-Kuroda is one of the original foundational carrots to emerge from Nagasaki prefecture’s acclaimed Kuroda Gosun Breeding Society in the 1930s.

Centered around the Kuromaru-cho neighborhood of Omura City, a group of farmer-vegetable breeders conducted continuous crossing efforts between different carrot varieties to arrive at this superior type – a sweet, orange-red carrot, with very little tapering, setting a new global standard for what a carrot could be.

Extremely high in beta carotene, the Hon-Kuroda is extraordinarily adaptable to different soil types. It is very heat tolerant, has vigorous growth, and is excellent for continuous planting. (Sow an additional row every two weeks from May to August for continuous season-long harvests). If you have room in the garden for one carrot, this should be it.
